Ben Saunders off to the North Pole  MAR 22 2010

And so adventurer Ben Saunders is off again on one of his little jaunts. This time, he's headed to the North Pole in 30 days, skiing alone and unsupported, attempting to shave six days off the 2005 record set by an entire team that used dog sleds and resupplying. Dangerous? Yep: his equipment page has a "bear safety" section. Watch his journal (and perhaps his Twitter) for updates...he'll be posting entries and photos via satellite phone as soon as he gets underway.
